Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs BAL (4 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had a tough day, as did the rest of the Titans offense. Marcus Mariota only completed 10 passes as he was too busy running for his life. Davis struggled to get open quickly though, making it hard for Mariota to find him. Davis' one reception came on a play where Davis made a nice move away from the cornerback to attack the football and make the reception. This 24-yard catch was the longest play on offense for the Titans.
2018 Week 5 vs BUF (6 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was the Titans' top target again this week, but he only managed 49 yards against tough coverage from Tre'Davious White. Davis started with a quiet first quarter outside of a short screen pass for four yards. Late in the first half, Davis made the catch and showed some extra effort to pick up the last couple yards on 3rd-and-11 deep in Titans territory to pick up the first down and keep their drive alive. His biggest play of the game would come midway through the third quarter as Mariota connected with Davis stealing across the middle of the field on a crossing route for 23 yards.
2018 Week 4 vs PHI (15 / 9 / 161 / 1 rec)
Corey Davis had a heck of a game this week as he led the team in all receiving categories while hauling in the first regular season touchdown of his career. Davis could have started off the day with a huge splash had Mariota been able to connect with him on a deep ball that surely would have been a touchdown. Davis instead settled for a 28-yard reception as his only catch of the first drive. Davis led off the next drive with another deep reception for 25 yards. He was peppered with targets throughout the game with more impactful gains up until his longest play of the game, which came in a big spot midway through the fourth quarter. On the first play of the drive, Davis streaked down the field at full speed as Mariota hit him perfectly in stride for a 51-yard reception that put the Titans in great shape to eventually find the end zone to take the lead. His next big moment came at the end of overtime as Davis hauled in the game-winning touchdown reception-- a 10-yard grab on which he elevated to bring in the contested catch to close this one out.
2018 Week 3 vs JAX (4 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was only targeted four times as the Titans offense was extremely limited with an injured Marcus Mariota at the helm for three-quarters of play. Davis did lead the team in receiving yards though, fueled by a 22-yard reception near the start of the second half. On 1st-and-20, this was a simple comeback route where Davis stopped on a dime to haul in the short pass before breaking through an arm tackle to accelerate across the first down line. Davis would have another big situational catch on 3rd-and-5 to move the chains as he hauled in shallow slant route right at the first down marker before getting a few extra yards on sheer effort for a 12-yard gain.
2018 Week 2 vs HOU (7 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis led the team in targets (7) for the second straight week in a game that did not set up well for wide receivers with the run-heavy game script. With Blaine Gabbert under center, very few risks were taken in the passing game as nearly every reception by Davis came from within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. Davis did not receive a target until late in the first quarter when showed his physicality with a big stiff arm at the tail end of a third-down reception to help pick up a few extra yards for the first down. The final drive of the game would be his most productive as Davis sprinted across the field to get open on a crossing route near the start of the drive, hauling in a 13-yard reception to move the chains. Later in the drive, Davis caught a screen pass and weaved his way upfield showing great acceleration and power as he broke two tackles on his way to an 18-yard gain before brought down. Davis did cough up the ball at the end of the run, but it was batted out of bounds.
2018 Week 1 vs MIA (13 / 6 / 62 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was a very big part of this Titans offense early and often, finishing with a career-high 13 targets. The issue here is that Davis really didn't do much with those targets as he only managed to haul in six of them for 62 yards. His first catch of the game was a great wheel route across the middle for a 17-yard pickup. Davis then led off the next drive with a 10 yard gain from a short pass. Davis seemed to struggle under solid coverage from rookie cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick and Xavien Howard throughout the day, as they were instrumental to some of his missed targets. Davis had a chance to score near the goal line during the first half, but he simply could not overcome the coverage from Fitzpatrick to haul in the catch.
